Sarah and Char are excited to have a garden again
Mom lines the bottom of the beds with paper to prevent weeds
Grandpa and Dad got dirt in this truck and he pulled it right back to where it needed to be
It was easier to take pictures than to shovel all this dirt
''We dig dirt, We dig dirt!''
We had just the right amount of dirt

The girls and Mom decided to make homemade crayons in the van on a very hot June day
June 28 - the high temperature was over 100!
The wax is all melted together!
The wax was all liquid - we brought it inside to cool
Crayola - eat your heart out!
The crayons were solid after cooling down
A nice assortment of colors!
These crayons make nice artwork too!
Maybe we can make money off these somehow?
